Overview

About the property

1BR Waterview Vacation Rental Kailua-Kona, Hawaii USA

Official website. When Granma was 95, we had to move her in with us to take care of her. This left her little panabode cabin (900 square feet with a 500 square-foot wrap-around lanai) vacant. Lucky you . . . you can spend your Hawaiian vacation in this beautiful, quiet, and centrally located cabin which has just about everything.

There is a complete kitchen, a bath with tub and shower, a washer/dryer, a living/dining room, a phone for local calls, and a cable TV with DVD player. There is also a big gas barbecue, and birds for a morning alarm clock. We even left all the little nick knacks in place to make this is truly a 'home-away-from-home'.

The home is backed by a herb farm and macadamia nut orchard. It is surrounded by mac nuts, lychee, and mango, avocado, and citrus trees. If anything is in season during your stay, you are welcome to enjoy it.

The big island of Hawaii is almost 200 miles around.

As you tour the island and along the Kona Coast you can see cattle ranches, rain forests, lava fields, volcanoes, snowcapped mountains in the winter, beaches, and spectacular valleys and waterfalls.

Our cabin is located in one of the most temperate places on earth. We have over 300 excellent days a year. All of our prior guests have raved about their stay, and have vowed to come back. The Big Island has something for everyone.

Perfect cabin, location and host

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 17 lovely days in Granma's cabin near Kona. This was our second visit to the island and preferred this location and home to our first VRBO south of Captain Cook. As we were arriving very late, we greatly appreciated Harry having purchased some wine, beer and cream for us - this allowed for a relaxing drink before bed and a good coffee on our first morning.

The location is perfect - 15 min from Kona - close to two major highways to travel around the island, and 15 min to the beaches. The elevation is equally perfect - high enough to be cool in the evenings (18C or 65F) and warm during the day (27C and 81F) - and moist enough to support lush vegetation but not rainy.

The lanai was exceptional - we dined each morning listening to the birds and looking down to the sea. The size of the lanai was such that you could seek sun or shade at most times of the day. No bugs to pester you. Beautiful trees and flowers adorned the property - cardinals, doves and many types of finches fed at Harry's feeder each day. Lovely Madagascar geckos visited each morning following breakfast.

We cooked all our meals at the cabin - the kitchen was complete - we used the stove, oven, microwave, coffee grinder, coffee maker and gas barbecue. There was plenty of hot water and we appreciated the washer dryer off the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable - this was an important feature for me.

The internet speed was fast - we both did some work each morning and the connections were excellent.

The neighbourhood was quiet and we took evening walks before dusk. The Big Island Running company was a good source for running company and running route advice. There were lots of beach supplies as well - snorkels, fins, mask, chairs, umbrellas, boogey boards, water shoes and towels.

Harry was an excellent host - close when needed and at the same time was respectful of our privacy. Harry was generous - providing delicious avocados, grapefruit, freshly squeezed lemon juice and macadamia nuts. Harry is also an award winning brewer and shared a number of his beer with us. Admittedly, I prefer dark beer - I was privileged to sample 3 different types of Harry's beer - and they were all exceptional - dark to light in colour - truly award winning.

The cabin is welcoming and comfortable and would love to make a return visit.

Perfect for our 1st Big Island Trip as a family

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was perfect for our family of 4. We got in really late our 1st night and Harry was there to meet us with a smile. He even brought up coffee for us and cereal and milk for our kids the next morning knowing we hadn't had time to get to the store yet.

The cabin was clean, well organized and had everything you would need to cook your own meals, wash your own clothes and take beach adventures(towels, beach mats, snorkel gear, boogie boards, coolers etc.)

We enjoyed watching the bird feeder in the morning and the geckos in the evening. It was a slice of of home comfort in the middle of paradise.

Absolutely a great place to stay. Loved the location. Definitely will be back. The owner was a pleasure to work with. The photos don't do this adorable cabin justice.

Strongly recommend the nice cabin

  • 5 of 5

We start our 2016 in that cozy cabin. Harry provides more than you can imagine! Thank you, Harry, we have a wonderful vocation in big island.

The house is space, clean and well organized. Harry prepared everything you need for beach: surfing board, snorkeling equipments, beach chairs, coolers ... and even a binoculars :) He is so considerate to prepare a safeway card for our grocery shopping, even I find it in the last day :)

We are located at 1100 ft. elevation on the west side of Hualalai mountain. The Coastview sub-division is all residential. There are no streetlights which provides for dark nights and good stargazing. The cabin is on the upper back half of a half acre lushly vegetated lot that includes mac nut, papaya, mangoe, lemon, lychee, coconut trees. Guests are welcome to any fruit that is ripe for the picking. Other vegetation was planted with fragrant and or pretty in mind. The cabin also has its own drive and parking area.
